I have been wanting to try Target’s Devine Color Silver Dust for a long time so I thought this would be a fun and different way to use it.  They also have a gold dust, which I also bought!

I started by mixing my white acrylic paint and the silver dust together in a plastic cup.

Similarly, to when I painted my jeans with thin white dashes, I did it all free handed.

For this doormat, I thought it was best to do a light dash pattern across the entire doormat to make sure the spacing felt right.

Once the pattern was laid out, I went back over each dash two or three times to get really good coverage.
